One down, one to go

The world's longest running dictator has stepped down, but Cuba is still being mismanaged with a disproven economic system by a dictator named Castro. Stay tuned for further developments.

In his message today, Fidel Castro wrote, "My wishes have always been to discharge my duties to my last breath. That’s all I can offer."

In this nation we have an orderly transition of power every four years. That's all we can offer.

Babalu Blog, one of my favorite reads about Cuba, has all the action, and a podcast as well.

Free Speech Radio News explored the day's news with an interview with Saul Landau from the Institute for Policy Studies.
